seems like a session cider, but clocks in at 6%. Fairly standard in execution...very crisp, quite light, and equal parts sweet and tart.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale yellow, super-fizzy, with a head that’s instantly gone. Aroma is pleasant apple with maybe a touch of peach, and I immediately can tell that the taste will be sweet. Aaaannddd.... I was wrong. The flavor is exquisitely tart and raw, with the sharp bite of a ripe Granny Smith. That’s pretty much all I can think of as I sip this, although I can detect alcohol phenols creeping through from time to time. My stomach won’t allow me to session this because of its sour acidity, but I’d certainly enjoy one every now and again. ~~~~~~~ Single 12 oz. can in a mixed-six, Kenwood Liquors, Oak Lawn, IL.

Can from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours very light gold with a transient (very) white head. Lots of carbonation here. Near med body. Apple aroma. Flavor is mildly tart apple skin, but it’s really more sweet than tart. Finishes undry.

On cask. Clear pale yellow pour, with no head and fizzy carbonation. Pretty standard apple cider flavor, a bit sweet, mostly dry, very mild tartness, and note of plastic. Ok.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Total Wine.
Light pour, no head. Apples and a rather putrid thing going on in the aroma. Relatively tart flavor, a bit of residual sweetness, not all that much apple. A couple of uncommon off notes that I lack the experience to characterize, one of which loosely reminds me of a glass of water that has sat out all day.
I don’t really like this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Still yellow gold with no head. Light Apple, with just a touch of tartness, moderate sweetness, champagne grapes, mild botanicals, and a quick refreshing finish. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can, solid price. Pours a clear yellow color. A sweet apple nose. The flavor is tannins, apples, sweet at times, almost woody. The dryness is pretty much dominant. Very smooth. Very nice cider.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Crystal clear straw hue with fizzy white head that immediately dissipates. Aroma is apple, acetic, sugar, CO2. Mouthfeel is nice & refreshing with medium light body and good carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a tart acidic following and a nice CO2 sharpness to round out the finish. Overall this is an enjoyable semi-sweet cider.
